NEW STANTON, Pa. —
A 40-year-old Mount Pleasant man was killed Tuesday morning after his car crashed off a bridge in Westmoreland County.
Authorities said the driver, David Williams, lost control on a Route 119 bridge in New Stanton about 8 a.m.
The car went off the bridge, dropped about 100 feet to the ground and ended up in a creek near Fry Hollow Road, investigators said.
“The car was still partially in the water and we had to pull it out to extricate the patient,” Midway St. Clair volunteer firefighter Rich Kepple said.
Investigators said Williams was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
Kathy Musgrove lives near the scene of the crash and told Channel 11 News that she could hear it from her house.
“I heard like a blunt noise. I thought it was maybe the neighbor’s gas can. It sounded like an explosion,” Musgrove said.
Crews are still investigating the crash, and said they’re not sure if heavy fog contributed.
